From propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane
Appliance conversion involves making changes to an appliance so that it can use a different fuel. This includes the replacement of gas orifices, burners and/or appliance regulators which are designed to work with a particular gas that has a specific pressure. Natural gas is a much lower-pressure gas than propane and converting an appliance to one or the other gases requires that the differing pressure is compensated for. In other words, connecting a natural gas appliance to a propane piping system will result in a possibly dangerous malfunction.
Due to gas service pressure, natural gas orifices are larger than propane orifices. The higher pressure propane gas flowing through a larger orifice will result in more gas through the burner and likely, more flame…an unnecessarily large flame. Trying to use a propane appliance with natural gas will likely result in a very small flame or no burner flame at all because of the lower-pressure gas and the smaller orifice. This is the underlying purpose of an appliance conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane. Appliances can be safely converted by a licensed gas appliance technician.
